In the world of competitive gaming, a scrub is a person who is unskilled at the game in question but refuses to improve because they enjoy their current style of play. They often accuse competitive players of sucking the fun out of the game by categorizing and analyzing everything. The term is always used derisively by competitive players. It originated in the world of fighting games but is also seen in the RTS and competitive Pokemon communities, among others.
Rob's a scrub. He bitched and moaned when I kicked his ass at 3rd Strike because I was making things "unfun."

I don't mind being called a "scrub." I don't want to devote hundreds of hours to mastering a game just so I can compete with a bunch of elitist neckbeards.

A scrub is someone who is acting like a loser or is being ridiculous at common things in life.

A derogatory term for males losers with no direction in life, used in the chorus of a 1990s Top 20 hit song.

Ritalin-junkie "gamers" who were probably born in the 90s use it in place of "noob" without realizing how it makes them sound like a valley girl. Because they're too young to remember valley girls.

No one with a life uses either term, except in jest.
You scrubs will never make it in EMM ELL GEE, brah!

A totally unlikable person, a dweeb if you will. He tends to annoy people without even trying. Can also be used as an adjective such as "Scrubby".
I don't want no scrub,
Scrub is a boy who can't get no love from me.
Hangin' out the passenger side
Of his best friends ride,
Trying to holler at me.
